“Passing through Joburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

A little gem of a place! Huge, lovely rooms and a 'home from home' atmosphere. Fantastic value for money. Safely tucked away from any of the nonsense which surrounds life in the northern suburbs. Watch out for the morning traffic snarl-up though!

Exceptional and friendly service coupled with clean, well appointed and spacious rooms make the Wesley our Home away from Home. Great value and convenient location make it our choice whenever in JHB..

Arriving after a long trip from Hazyview we were greeted by the guard on the gate who was very friendly and helpful and explained where to park etc. He radioed the reception to let them know of our arrival and the receptionist greeted us warmly and efficiently, showed us the amenities (honesty bar etc) before showing us to our room. The room was very contemporary and spacious with a roll top bath and enoromous seperate shower, air conditioning and heating. The bed was very comfortable and room clean and neat. The only negative thing I would say is that when you are in your room, due to the huge windows you have no privacy unless you draw the curtains which, on a nice sunny day is not ideal.

Breakfast was ok, not the best I have ever had but most certainly not the worst either. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and efficient.

The grounds and pool were exceptionally well maintained (my only regret is that in winter the water was too cold for a dip) and beautiful.

I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

I've stayed at the Wesley now on many occasions over the past two years. I have stayed in all the three categories of room and all are quality. Sydney picks me up from the airport and he's always on time, even when I'm not! Its simply a nice place to stay

Neatly located in the leafy suburb of Bryanston, The Wesley is the place to be at. Great value for money, beautiful bedrooms, lovely outdoor resting facilities and genuinely a quite place away from the busy Jhb. The staff was friendly and very professional. The beds are to die for, soft linen and clean bedrooms. Spacious rooms that will keep you indoors all day, all weekend. The Wesley is definitely my choice away from the impersonal hotels with fresh breakfast and personal attention to each guest, they have my vote for my stays in Jhb.

I was impressed by the fact that I managed to get a room despite my having not booked ahead. The staff went to great lengths to source a room for me, and not just a standard room for that matter!
The Presidential suite that we stayed in was exquisite! My wife and kids loved it!. The room had everything that catered for all of us, especially for the baby. And it also rekindled sweet thoughts for us - the scenic view towards the pool area was fantastic. The location of the hotel also is great - it's tucked away (offering privacy) yet within reach of Sandton and other great places. The VALUE for MONEY IS AWESOME

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Wesley is an upmarket Guesthouse that caters for the more discerning guests. Situated in the heart of Bryanston, Sandton, surrounded by beautiful gardens and a natural bird haven which has been cultivated over decades opposite the Bryanston golf course. As one of the oldest farm houses in Bryanston, the property is situated on the highest point in the area and has been occupied by Multinational CEOs and Heads of States. The Wesley is conveniently near many popular venues, namely 10 minutes away from Sandton, Fourways, Cresta, Rosebank, Monte Casino, the highway and the Gautrain Set in an idyllic surrounding, there are few experiences that can rival sipping sundowners on the deck, listening to the gurgling of the waterfalls, basking amongst the unique bird life, and watching the setting of the magnificent South African sun! Exclusivity and privacy is the key to the service offering and each room is designed with this in mind. The entire area is covered by Cameras, electric fencing and electric beams with 24 hour guards and is truly a secure environment where you can feel at home without any worries. With a backup generator in case of power failure.The rooms vary in size from 45 to 100 square metres boasting antiques in all the rooms dating between 100 and 250 years old. The focus and design is a fusion between French Provencal with touches of ancient colonial Asia. Each of the 11 rooms has a sense of conformity with the detail presenting total individualism. The majority of the decor has been specifically imported and guests can experience treats such as slumbering on an 18th Century bed. Without giving away all the treasures to be found in the common areas, you will definitely notice the 250 year old feature door when exploring the property. There is a Cigar bar and an African Bar and a beautiful swimming pool with waterfalls and Palm trees rivaling Sun City. If you are looking for the best bouquet of offerings from personal to professional and modern to old school, The Wesley will not disappoint both private and business traveller alike. The Wesley has become 'ONE HOT TICKET' getting a full write up in the Top Billing 2011 Issue ... more   less
